Quick iPhone Musing

I recently downloaded a couple of blogging apps for the iPhone in an effort or become even more mobile than I already am. One is free while the other a new introduction from The Blog Herald. It's called "altBlogger". It gives writers the ability to create links to sites that many other more rudimentary apps don't allow. As you can see, I've included a link.

Of course, if you don't see it, then either I did something wrong or the app isn't working properly. I won't know until I publish this post. Well, we'll see, won't we?

Why two apps? Well? altBlogger doesn't allow me to save drafts but thend second app, BlogPress Lite, does. But BPL does allow me to create links, which is needed at times.

Anyway, many readers are interested in mobile blogging so I'll post my experiences about it later.

The second musing I want to share is that as I try to become more mobile while sharing my experiences, I ind the iPhone to be an excellent replacement for a standard laptop or netbook for basic computing. I've got an assortment of apps for office work, writing, creating and editing arts, and references. Anything that I might need are quickly and easily accessible through mobile Safari.

Plus I've got my music, games, and videos all with me as well.

I have to say that while push notifcation is great and all, omitting the ability, even a limited one, to allow some apps to run in the background has created inefficiencies. Hence, it's why I needed two diff blogging apps.

Plus I recent got a battery case for my iPhone that gives me three times more battery life. I think I am all set to run three or four apps simultaneously, Apple.
